El Espacio 23
2270 NW 23 Street, Miami, USA
El Espacio 23 is located in a former 28,000 square foot warehouse in the Allapattah neighborhood. Opened by Jorge M. Perez, it will not only provide space for contemporary artists to exhibit but also for the development of current working artists with three apartments designed as residencies for artists and curators. The inaugural exhibition, ‘Time for Change: Art and Social Unrest in the Jorge M. Pérez Collection’, focuses on the notion of art and the artist as an agent for social change that can explore the conflicts and contradictions of contemporary society. An interest in the marginalized aspects of society and history ties together the nearly 100 works by over 80 artists including Michelangelo Pistoletto, Jonathas De Andrade, Carlos Garaicoa and Ai Weiwei.
